keep straight

This performance had a single guideline: walk straight! Our cross-country journey had no destination and time frame but to follow the imaginary straight path. Barriers, fences, and other obstacles had to be overcome. Using a compass, we started in a little town, crossing woods, fields, bodies of water, fences, streets, gardens, private property, etc. When we had to leave the straight route to find food, sleep or material for overcoming obstacles, the journey had to be resumed at the same point. By ignoring the usual objectives of time and route (saving time by extending the distance), we fundamentally changed it: short distance, a lot of time and a new confrontation with the location´s structure.
